New Manga Style Character “Midnight”



Occasionally a name for a character will just come to me as I am working on a piece.  This was one of those times.  I thought Midnight was the perfect name for my new character.  She reminds me of the night  and celebrates the color blue.  Many times the name of a character or title of a piece of art is a challenging process for me.  Sometimes I have two names I really like and can’t decide between the two.  I do favor one word titles.   My husband titles some of my pieces and always just nails it… like he read my mind when I didn’t know what I was thinking.  HA!

What is your creative process for naming or titling your art?

My Daughter’s Senior Portrait

Portrait of girl in space

My daughter loves math, science and astronomy.  This is her senior year in high school.  I had this idea in my head of how I wanted to photograph her and then add some digital “space” to her portrait.  I finally got the chance to take her portraits in February.  It was a very fun photo shoot with makeup by Carolyn Simon.  I just love how it turned out!  I can’t believe she will be graduating in just a few months.  –Janell
